There are a fair number of mexican restaurants in Minnesota, but outside of St. Paul, most are like this one. Booths, meals by the number, drinks by the quart. What I do whenever I'm trying one out is that I order the chili rellenos. That is, in my mind's eye, a test of the chef. If it's a good chef,... More

If you need colour in your life visit El Agave. The décor is unimaginably colourful and interesting. The service is remarkably fast - even before you are fully seated someone is bringing you chips and someone else is bringing you menus and taking your drink order. I ate there twice in one week and found the portions generous, the food... More

Friday night dinner! We had chimichangas, chicken and spinach Enchiladas, a Philly cheesesteak burrito, and a chicken fajita salad. Everyone cleaned their plates. The fried items were a little greasy, but delicious.

Good, authentic food. Atmosphere is very festive and the waiters/waitresses are friendly. Never a long wait for the food and almost always comes piping hot.

My son attends college in St. Peter and he wanted Mexican food, when we were there for a visit. This is about it for Mexican food, unless you want a fast-food place, so we gave it a try. It is super easy to find and parking is ample. We were greeted promptly and seated with a great view of the... More

We had dinner at El Agave this past weekend. We were in town for parents weekend at Gustavus. The place was packed. The margaritas were huge and only $6.99. Our dinners were very good. The burritos are very large and I ordered the Arroz con Moriscos (a shrimp) dish which was wonderful! The atmosphere was very lively and fun. The... More
